Liberty Building – 1966


By Kurt Meyer and Associates. In ‘An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles’ it says of the building at 1180 S Beverly Drive:

A Los Angeles version of the 1960’s New Brutalism. It’s awkward proportioned seven storey form is a reminder of how architectural fashions come and go.

I like it. The building’s solid mass of concrete and solar shading details make it appear robust and permanent amongst the flimsy lightweight construction that typifies Los Angeles.
